Research has shown that without a strong foundation in reading, children are left behind at the beginning of their educational careers. The purpose of emergent literacy instruction is not to teach children how to read. The purpose is to teach the foundation that will provide children in their later academic careers the groundwork needed to become proficient readers.
Educators can provide a variety of activities to support young children’s pre-reading and pre-writing development.
